Thinking about finding a date for formal makes me want to die. I don’t mean that figuratively. It literally makes me want to say “fuck this shit” pack it up, and die. It’s time consuming, self-esteem destroying, and it will most likely result in taking a guy who vomits on your dress and hooks up with your best friend. Cheers to the best years, right? Honestly, most of us wish we could just send out applications, do some background checks, and have a long line of boys begging us to go.
It was a dream we all thought about until finally, a girl decided that she had had enough. In what might be the ballsiest move in sorority history, this (genius) woman decided to put herself out there to find a perfect date. She had paid her dues, she had done her community service (maybe), and by God, she was going to have a hell of a formal with a smoking hot guy. More importantly, a guy of her choice.
What did she do? She actually put out an ad to find a formal date. And it’s perfect.

AND IT WORKED. She received tons of request from guys and literally got to hand select which one she wanted. It’s like going shopping for a date, but you can do it from the comfort of your couch, and with no pants on. It’s obvious that this Alycia chick was sent from above to teach us the way of formal dates. When I asked her why, she literally said, point blank, “There was a lack of tall attractive men [at my school] and no boyfriend. I am tall and basically I really needed a tall date. I’m six feet tall and I wanted to wear heels, but he had to be cute too!”
And boy, did she find him. Let’s just say after some serious research (read: Facebook stalking) I found out that her date is 6’3, funny, has a corgi, AND has a beard. Not only did she land an awesome date, but she proved there’s nothing wrong with asking a guy out. Nothing says we have to adhere to the old fashioned way of relationships. Take risks. Do what you want. Give zero fucks and enjoy the fact that you can do whatever the hell you want..
